Quite a lot of traffic this week - I live about 10 miles from Farnborough so there's a fair bit around near showtime. A couple of Ospreys a few days ago, then on Tuesday some of the London flypast came over - Airbus shaped tanker, four-engined aircraft which I think is called a "Rivet Joint", and AWACS.

Some WW1 stuff today - 2 off SE5A, 2 off DR1, Junkers D1 and BE2. Not 100% of my id of the last two, and some or all may have been replicas.

Used to see the Red Arrows a lot, but they don't do Farnborough any more (post Shoreham).

A B-25 Mitchell, quite low. Apparently its the Red Bull one and going into Farnborough.

On Tuesday it was three Pumas, six Chinooks and three EC(AH?)-135/145s all in formation. That lot made the doors rattle!

I saw what looked like a DC6 flying from Cranfield, Beds, this afternoon. It flew over again at about 6pm, low and making a wonderful noise. I’m sure it was a DC6. Does anybody else know anything about it? I thought the only DC6 in the country was the ex-Air Atlantique one which was converted into a diner 😩. A happy surprise to me that another one is flying in the UK.

The red Bull DC-6 flew right over our flying field near Luton this afternoon at about 1000 feet, wonderful sight and sound!

Thanks, I think it must have been the Red Bull DC6 then. I saw the Brietling Constellation flying in Switzerland a few years ago. I’m glad that firms sponsor these planes so that we can enjoy seeing them flying.

We had a full size Rutan Long EZ fly over the airfield at Ashbourne on Saturday. It makes me wonder if there's a model kit available or perhaps a drawing with CNC components. It would certainly be a different model.

Saw a DC3 in D-day markings flying over Wavendon Bucks on Sunday. Milton Keynes museum had a 1940’s weekend, vehicles and a ‘WW2 flypast’. I think the DC3 I saw was the fly past, on the way back to wherever it came from. Glad I happened to be there!

The Shuttleworth Collection's Avro Anson flew over here yesterday. I'm just north of Dundee. No idea what it was doing up here but great to see.
